Skyward Sword is a success for a number of reasons, however, it is its superb motion controls that are its biggest achievement. This is a game that feels so natural to play from start to finish. Moreover, Nintendo has made key updates to the certain gameplay and storytelling elements, making this the freshest Zelda title since the much revered Ocarina of Time. Unfortunately, Skyward Sword is still stuck in the past in a few places, which is incredibly frustrating when you take into account how long this game was worked for on. Nevertheless, if you’re looking for an unrivalled adventure experience on Wii that plays, looks and sounds great, then Skyward Sword is a must-have purchase.
